The Craft Companion Willy Lit Fest

Once the domain of the domestic, craft has now infiltrated every creative sphere – including food, fashion, fine art and architecture. Join bonafide craft gurus Rebecca Jobson and Ramona Barry as they talk with Gemma Jones about the craft renaissance and researching and writing their gorgeous book, The Craft Companion.

The Craft Companion — Rebecca Jobson and Ramona Barry
Hard, soft, simple, complex, old and new school processes from appliqué to zakka are all on the menu in this creative degustation sure to satisfy the hungriest crafter. Over 30 different crafts are explored by chapter from their earliest beginnings to newest incarnations. Each craft comes complete with specialised tools list, design tips, step by step instructions, practice project and a selection of choice project ideas to keep you busy for years. Learn techniques and how to apply them across a variety of projects, discover the rich history of craft from stone age to new age, be inspired by amazing artists and designer/makers rethinking and reinventing craft practice around the world, and be bombarded by bad craft related puns on every second page.
